Although in the last decades the applicable regulations for the design of steel structures have been deeply improved accounting for modern design approaches and technologies, in a few industrial fields, concepts and formulations derived from centuries-old experience are even nowadays the governing rule. This very often limits the potential offered by the technological innovations in high-performance material, such as quenched and tempered (QT) steels. After having verified in the scientific literature, in the commercial one and in several open material databases that some main data necessary to the comprehensive characterization of QT steel used in building large metal structures are lacking, an extensive experimental campaign was undertaken to achieve an updated and specific fatigue strength characterization for certain types of materials. The aimis to overcome the strict requirements of current regulations on the application of both parent QT materials and welded homogeneous and heterogeneous joints between different steel strength. The experimental campaign allowed filling the knowledge gap as well as providing further understanding whether the use of high-strength steel is effective in the improvement of performances of large steel structures, whose fabrication procedures are typical of building sites rather than workshops. Their extensive application in current building practice is expected to be highly beneficial in terms of weight and costs.
